I'm planning a trip to in November to celebrate a milestone anniversary. Can anyone suggest a romantic place to stay for a couple of nights that best represents New Orleans? We'd love to stay in or w/in walking distance (we won't have a car) of French Quarter.

There are large bed and breakfast homes on St. Charles if you might not want a hotel, the streetcar is $1.25 and goes very close by to the Quarter. There are many hotels in the Quarter, but I don't know exact names.
The quarter is just so busy, not as romantic.

Ah, I see. So French Quarter is probably too busy to be romantic, then? Thanks for the tip. I was looking outside of the French Quarter, but wanted to make sure I'm not stuck at a hotel. I definitely need a good map with the streetcar route.

It can be fun and beautiful, but the weekends are just TOO busy. Personally, I would want to be in a less crowded area to pay the most attention to my lady. The larger car stops have maps, hotels also have maps, brochures, and help tourists all the time.

I'd stay at the Columns Hotel on St. Charles and, as others have suggested, take the street car down to the quarter.

The Columns is nice, but so is the Monteleon in the Quarter. As for the Columns, I would rather go there for drinks on the poarch.

I suggest the Monteleone or the Roosevelt. Each has sort of a grand lobby and have great history in New Orleans. I'm sure you can find pictures on the internet somewhere.
